TARGIT

TARGIT Decision Suite is an integrated BI platform that offers integrated reporting, dashboard creation, ad hoc reporting and data discovery capabilities. It is mainly used to create applications such as vertical solutions or to be used as OEM or embedded content.

TARGIT is a privately-owned software provider founded in 1986 with its headquarters in Aalborg, Denmark. The company employs more than 85 80 people and has over close to 68,8000 customers, most of whom are located in Europe and North America, while one-third are distributed across the rest of the world. In 2017, TARGIT sold 100 percent of its shares to Gro Capital, reorganized the company and began to renew its positioning.

TARGIT launched its flagship TARGIT Decision Suite product in 1996. TARGIT Decision Suite was originally built for the Microsoft SQL Server platform and has achieved significant penetration with Microsoft Dynamics customers in general, but also broadly within the retail, heavy machinery and food manufacturing industries. Although the vendor has opened its architecture to other platforms, TARGIT still offers solution accelerators for Microsoft Dynamics systems, which makes the platform interesting for Microsoft-centric customers.

User & Use Cases

TARGIT Decision Suite is clearly not a typical BI & analytics specialist serving one particular scenario. In contrast, it is a feature-rich business intelligence platform that customers typically buy for its good coverage of BI and analytics-specific requirements. More than 90 percent of customers use the product for reporting, ad hoc query and dashboards. Although it does not focus on planning and budgeting scenarios, 51 percent also use it to create reports and dashboards on actual and budget data. This underlines the platform’s versatility.

TARGIT’s customer base is dominated by mid-sized companies. In this year’s survey, 77 percent of respondents came from companies with 100 to 2,500 employees. Overall, an average (mean) of 131 users per company use TARGIT, while the median is 63.

As TARGIT has historically been installed in accounts using operational software from Microsoft and the software itself traditionally focused on the Microsoft SQL Server platform, Microsoft remains one of its biggest competitors.
